It's a fashion guessing game that can unfortunately backfire and impact how truly hardworking individuals are perceived. Not fair, but fact. I vowed that if I ever had my own company, which I do, I would clearly define Casual Fridays: Dress in a manner which allows for maximum comfort without sacrificing individual style or personality but in a manner that will not scare away our customers. Do that EVERY day. Then I left it up to my team to get a little laugh and interpret it in their own way. They don't ever look any less than fashionable.
I try to lead by example. My own weekly uniform (below) always starts with a really great pair of jeans plus a graphic tee, the softer than fabric the better. Add a chic velvety, downy or silky jacket for greeting studio guests, flats or wedges and jewelry from my personal collection and I'm ready for the busiest of days.
